April 21, 2013 08:24 PM by Veronica Dudo

This week the all-star cast of NBC’s hit reality TV series, Celebrity Apprentice is tasked with creating interactive travel expos for South Africa Tourism. Former contestant, Bret Michaels returns but this time on the other side of the boardroom. One team lacks manpower while the other team’s project manager┬álets their concept change for the worse. The Boardroom advisors are Bret Michaels and George Ross. Keep reading to find out who stays and who goes!

The all-stars are all vying to win money for their charities. The seven remaining celebrities include Marilu Henner, Brande Roderick, Lisa Rinna, Gary Busey, Penn Jillette, Trace Adkins and Lil Jon.

Both teams must give presentations highlighting everything South Africa has to offer. Brande Roderick is the Project Manager for Team Power leading Trace Adkins,┬áMarilu Henner and Lil Jon. They are given “adventure” so they will show fun activities to do in South Africa. During their presentation, Brande gives the executives authentic tea and informative pamphlets. To show “adventure” they put the executives in chairs and push them across the room to create the feeling of zip lining; have mini golf set up; and a fence with a fake shark jumping out at patrons.

Over on Team Plan B, Penn Jillette steps up as Project Manager leading Gary Busey and Lisa Rinna. Their concept is to show the “romance” of South Africa. With only three people on Team Plan B, it’s very difficult for them to get everything done. Tasks seem especially difficult for Gary Busey who is struggling to focus on the jobs he is given. Penn is able to get a famed South African five star chef to make food for their presentation, a drummer from Paul Simon’s album and Zulu dancers for their presentation.

In the boardroom Donald Trump reveals that the executives selected Team Plan B as the winner therefore Penn Jillette will get money for his charity, Opportunity Village. Now, Brande Roderick–who has lost two tasks as Project Manager for Team Power this season–must bring two people back into the boardroom to face The Donald. Brande decides to bring Marilu Henner and Trace Adkins. In the boardroom, Trace reveals that he thought their presentation was juvenile. In the end, Donald Trump fires Brande Roderick. Since she didn’t win and money for her charity, Promises to Kids; Donald decides to give her $20,000 and she is very appreciative for the donation.
